Biography Michael Macliammhoir
Whilst best remembered as an actor, Mac Liammóir originally studied painting at the Slade, London (1915-1916). From an early age he was fascinated by the work of Aubrey Beardsley and the decadence of Art Nouveau.
In London he joined the Gaelic League to learn Irish, which stood him in good stead when he arrived in Dublin c.1917. Henceforth he was pivotal in literary, dramatic and artistic circles, illustrating numerous books and famously devoting the main part of his energies to the Gate Theatre (see Snoddy, pp. 398-400).
